Here are some pics of my first attempt at making a table. I tried to go simple and just keep it clean with only a top shelf and no bottom shelf. The table is Walnut and Maple and the top is 20×40 x 1-1/6 with 5 inch squares for the checkerboard pattern. The legs are 1-3/4×1-3/4×27-1/2 with 32 oak dowels joints connecting the legs to the aprons (i think apron is the right word!) and 8 pocket screws with glue connecting the top to the legs. I finished the table with 6 coats of General Finishes PolyAcrylic Semi-Gloss with sanding in between coats using #0000 steel wool. Overall, I think it came out pretty good, I did burn some of the cove corners when I was routing and I couldn’t seem to get them out with sanding so I just let it go. Now I just need to figure where to place it in the house!
